Take a step back in time and relive your favorite moments from the nest box on the 2017 WBU Barred Owl cam! Watch the owls deliver prey of all types as they work to raise three owlets to fledging. The three eggs hatched on April 6, 8, and 10. The Barred Owls sole focus for the next 4–5 weeks will be to provide enough food and warmth to their owlets as they grow old enough to venture into the wild beyond the nest box. Watch live at http://allaboutbirds.org/barredowls ******************************* Jim Carpenter, President and CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, has hosted a camera-equipped owl box in his wooded backyard since 1999. Set more than 30 feet high against the trunk of a pignut hickory tree, this Barred Owl box was first occupied in 2006. Since then, the box has hosted several nests, including successful attempts since 2013. The camera system was updated in 2013 with an Axis P3364-LVE security camera and microphone mounted to the side of the box and connected to Jim’s house via 200 feet of ethernet cable. To keep predators like raccoons from investigating the nest, aluminum flashing was wrapped around the tree. An infrared illuminator in the box means you can keep track of the owls’ comings and goings throughout the night (don’t worry—the light is invisible to the owls). Since the birds aren’t banded, we can’t tell whether this is the same pair as in past years. Although male and female Barred Owls look alike in their plumage, females can be up to a third bigger than males. You can also tell the difference between them by watching their behavior; only the female incubates the eggs and chicks, but the male is responsible for the bulk of the feeding, ferrying prey items to the incubating female, and sharing them with her inside and outside of the box. For the second year in a row, the female laid her first egg on March 5; if all goes well, we can expect the owlets to start hatching between April 5 – 10. They’ll leave the nest four to five weeks after hatching. Learn more about Barred Owls in our AllAboutBirds Species Guide at https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/barred_owl/id.

Watch LIVE at http://AllAboutBirds.org/CornellFeeders for news, updates, and more information about the pond and its surroundings. This FeederWatch cam is located in the Treman Bird Feeding Garden at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Perched on the edge of both Sapsucker Woods and its 10-acre pond, these feeders attract both forest species like chickadees and woodpeckers as well as some species that prefer open environments near water like Red-winged Blackbirds. The Wild Birds Unlimited store at Sapsucker Woods has been a part of the visitor experience in the Cornell Lab’s Visitor Center ever since the new building opened in 2003. They are the preferred vendor of official Cornell Lab merchandise and offer a dizzying number of feeders, binoculars, and birdwatching-related gear and gifts to make any bird enthusiast happy. WBU has also pledged support for many of the Cornell Lab’s local efforts, including providing the bird feeders and food for this FeederWatch Cam.

In her TEDxMahtomedi presentation, “Building for the Birds”, Joanna talks about preventative measures that can be taken individually and within a community to prevent bird window collisions. Joanna Eckles has watched, studied, and worked with birds all her life. She received her bachelor’s degree in wildlife science at Cornell University and her master’s degree in conservation biology at the University of Minnesota. In 2006, she began working with Audubon Minnesota to study bird–window collisions and develop a program to address the problem, a significant source of bird mortality. Project BirdSafe is now a core part of Audubon Minnesota’s Bird-friendly Communities program. Joanna is also developing Bird City Minnesota, a municipal recognition program highlighting communities for the positive actions they take on behalf of birds.

Consumer experience design theorist Markus Giesler recalls the simple yet eye-opening bird-feeding experiment that sparked ten years of innovation research to suggest a much-needed shift in our innovation thinking: From creating breadcrumbs that catch on to designing market systems that include everyone. Listen for illuminating insights on the sociology of experience design - and a good excuse to leave your viral-innovation box for a walk in the park. Markus Giesler uses a sociological approach to understand the dynamics and design of (tech-based) consumer experiences. In 2014, Poets & Quants named him one of 40 best business school professors under the age of 40 in the world. He blogs at shapingmarkets.org.

Suzanne researches how to help Bluebirds in their surprisingly violent turf war with House Sparrows, and how we can use this war to learn about environmental toxins like pesticides or other chemicals. Bluebirds are a beautiful, native species in North America, but they are constantly harassed by House Sparrows, an invasive species from Europe. Listen in to learn about Bluebird defenders, called Bluebirders, and what they are doing change the balance. Read below to learn more about the study or even get involved: About Suzanne Suzanne is a a masters student in Fisheries Wildlife and Conservation Biology at NC State.

Over five years of planning led to the Loop Lofts' final development. With 165 apartments, offering 3-bedroom, 2-bedroom and efficiency options, the lofts were created especially for juniors and seniors in the undergraduate programs. Beyond our common spaces and multi-purpose rooms, we provide one of the only grocery stores to serve in the Delmar loop area: United Provisions. You'll also find Joe Edwards' Peacock Diner next door - the first 24-hour dining option in the area. It's just one of the ways we provide a unique experience for students by taking advantage of the lively Loop area. Also teaming with local non-profits, our goal is to provide our students the best housing options and always compliment our community.

In tidepools, where there used to be a mix of organisms including sea stars, scientists are now seeing mussels dominating… in the Pacific Northwest, sea stars have either gotten smaller in body size, or they are big, with few in the mid-size range, says Drew Harvell, a marine ecologist at Cornell University.

This movie shows a larch-clad residence by floating architecture specialists Baca Architects is raised above its flood-prone site in Oxfordshire on tiny stilts and an elevated deck (+ slideshow). Water Lane is the latest flood-resilient home from the London studio led by architects Richard Coutts and Robert Barker. The pair previously developed the UK's "first amphibious house" and a concept for prefabricated floating houses that they believe could be the answer to London's housing crisis. The property is set beside a brook in the historic village, which is recorded in the 1086 survey known as the Doomsday Book, so the architects had the dual task of developing a design that would compliment the area's traditional houses, while safeguarding it against potential flooding. The dwelling is made from four interlocking gabled volumes and elevated slightly above its site by a wooden deck and stilts. This arrangement is intended to allow water to flow below the property without causing damage, while during dry spells the house "appears to lightly float". "The site has a brook running along its edge and during high rainfall the site may flood," said the architects. "The house is raised above the flood level allowing water to convey underneath when the area floods." "The landscape is sculpted to accept encroaching water, adding water storage and acting as a gradual warning of the advancing floodwaters." The interlocking forms define four different areas of the house – a living room, dining space, kitchen and bedroom block.
